Triazole restrictions to impact EU productivity

A restriction on the availability of triazole fungicides as a result of cut-off criteria under the EU agrochemical registration Regulation (1107/2009) would lead to reduction in cereal yields and difficulties in resistance management, says a study by the German Institute for Agribusiness (Giessen). Many impact assessments on the effects of the Regulation have predicted restrictions on triazoles ( Agrow passim). An EU ban would reduce EU production of wheat, oilseeds and sugar beet by 18-25%, changing its trade status from a net exporter to a net importer for wheat and sugar, while significantly increasing its oilseed imports, the study estimates. For agricultural farm enterprises, the yield reductions would signify a profit reduction of up to 11% in France, 17% in the UK and 29% in Germany.
